(November 2019) – Houston police have reported that a suspect is in custody and has been charged with Intoxication Manslaughter and Failure to Stop and Render Aid in the 178th State District Court after a fatal crash killed a cyclist on Monday.
The collision occurred at around 6:30 p.m. at 9800 Aldine Westfield. Witnesses say that a white Chevrolet Suburban driven by the suspect, 25-year-old Sergio Montenegro, failed to stay in his lane and veered off into the grassy area between the road and the sidewalk. He then struck the cyclist, who was also traveling southbound on Aldine Bender. The victim was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Montenegro fled the scene and was apprehended later after a witness reported the vehicle’s location at a nearby business at 9600 Irvington.
HPD continues to investigate, and the team at the Mokaram Law Firm will report additional details when available. Check back here for updates.
